As I mentioned earlier, Eddie asked me to sub for his team Thursday night, and as I try to cling on to summer’s waning days, I obliged him and rode my bike to Murry Burgtraum field in Lower Manhattan.
It was a pretty easy assignment since they were not very short-handed after all. I played the role of the extra hitter and didn’t have to play the field. As the EH, I took three at-bats grounding out twice but hitting a sharp line drive that split the right and center fielders. The hit was good for a three-run home run.
The New York United did quite well in this game, winning 17-3. The subs Eddie recruited, many who were players from the Librarians, played very well and were key in the victory.
